Quarantine Present From Me To You!

Been thinking lots about you!

…and how this pandemic might be impacting your life.

It’s time like these we are forced back to basics… to nature. Suddenly big plans + resolutions + workout routines + social affairs + money goals + social media strategies + family vacations, all take a back seat and we can only think about ONE thing: How to keep those we love most safe.

What a true miracle it is to be alive in this planet, isn’t ?

In a split second my most valued form of currency ain’t money no more, but my health and having fresh juice in my fridge. And I can no longer take for granted the tiny little simple things like watching the tide come n’ go or how much better everything tastes when you add avocado on top. Not to mention how incredibly sexy it is to see my man host his first tele-conference from my studio and close a deal, virtually. So hot!

I actually feel so proud of everyone doing their part in all of this.

From the doctor who can’t stay home to be with family to the parent engineering all sorts of made up games to entertain the kids.

From the fitness instructor hosting a free LIVE workout to keep us sane to the relative sending funny memes and reminding us to stay positive.

From the supermarket delivery guy who looks like Bane from Batman to the local farmer bringing real food to our table. in times like these. I say AMEN.

And I felt empowered to do my part. Something. Anything that feels remotely helpful. So here I am, sending you this FREE coloring page as a reminder to #StayHome and keep your distance so when we reunite, nobody’s missing. Hope it brings joy to your home and gives you at least 25 minutes of peace.

Hope you enjoy my newest creation. Cause I think the world needs a bit unicorn magic, am I right?

Pero, Why English?

Por qué English? La pregunta que nunca falla. En el episodio de hoy la respondo. No que sienta que debo una explicación, pero de cuando en vez me gusta reafirmarme en voz alta a modo monologo. Y el de hoy viene con picante Caribeño.

PREGUNTA: Cuál es una de esas sugerencias no solicitadas o comentarios pasivo-agresivos que te deja la gente y te hierven la cabeza? Desahógate en los comentarios.

Aprovecho para decirte: GRACIAS de todo corazón, por seguirme la pista + por tomarte el tiempo de entender + por hacerme preguntas si algo queda Lost in Translation. Me hace tan feliz que estes aquí y poder tener una comunidad tan linda de mujeres latinas que amo y adoro.

What’s Your Love Language?

How do you express love and affection? How do you feel the most loved and appreciated?

I remember that one time I thought I was crushing it by getting David a new surfboard for his birthday. Got the color + the measurements + the style… all wrong. Apparently my man hates surprises . But with some trial n error, I discovered that the way to win his heart is through sexy talk + lot’s of touch (and ass grabbin’ 😜) + making cookbook-worthy meals, not gifts.

I feel the most loved when David takes the time to orchestrate something special. Effort is my highest form of currency. Bonus point if there is sweat involved, and a hand written note. On the other hand, asking my mother in law to help buy my Christmas presents or go to the mall the day of (even if you get me a brand new computer or a Ferrari), is the quickest way to the doggie house.

And then you got Oli, forget the safety blanket, this lil’ cuddling monster can’t fall asleep with squishing someone’s elbows for 23 minutes.

In today’s episode I talk about love languages. Let’s see which one sounds more like you.

POLL: So, what’s your love language?

There are certain historic memories that change you.

Like waking up to the sound of my dad juicing, no alarm clock needed. The smell of granny making eggnog. Always being the shortest person in class. How hard it was for me to memorize poems, rivers, capitals, until I turned them into song. Who else did that?

I’m talking about some of the things that shaped me as a kid in today’s video.
